Beautiful beach view from kitchen and living spaces. Large incredible pool! The outside of the house needs a lot of work, but didn't affect our stay. It would be helpful to have some written instructions on how to work the smart tvs and hot tub. We had a wonderful vacation!
Wright family reunion
We had a great time. It was my husbands 89th birthday and the whole family was there to celebrate. The house was in semi- good condition considering there was still work to be done to repair it from lat years hurricane.
We are delighted that you had a great time with your lovely family and celebrated your husbands Birthday! Thanks for leaving the house so tidy. We hope to see you again in the future!
Take care, Kenny & Julie
Family reunion fun!
We had 22 people in all including kids and had a blast at Kiwi Splash. Hurricane renovations not complete but didn't deter us from having a great time. Gorgeous view of ocean, excellent kitchen facilities, comfortable beds. The large pool was a highlight for us, but we also spent time on the beach. No regrets, would do it again if opportunity comes up.
It was a pleasure having your lovely group! We are so happy you enjoyed the memory foam mattresses on all beds, fully stocked kitchen, views & huge pool. We hope to see you in the near future!
Owner's property description not exactly what you get...reading about it does not make it so!
Not to confuse anyone, we had a fabulous vacation despite the issues with this potentially terrific beach property. The following are issues that need to be addressed by the owner; some were clearly reported to the owners and not fixed.
1) The rating of 2 stars is for one major reason: RATS with evidence of the owners being aware of the rat problem. When told about the rat sighting, the owner sounded surprised at first but further into the conversation asked if we had seen any evidence of the rat(s) being in the main living quarters...we had not at that point...the owner then stated that "these old beach houses normally have rats" and he would "cover the openings in the water heater closet when we left"....the rat encounter being in the water heater closet. We did find RAT DROPPINGS in the KITCHEN on the final day there. We did not report this as we felt the owner would not address this issue at that time.
2) No hot water....ran out on day 2 of our vacation, owner asked if "the hose was still running into the pool"? It was there when we arrived, found no instructions to remove the running hose from the pool, so we left it as found. We were told to "turn the hose off because it runs from the water heater"...We had no more hot water issues after the hose was turned off. We DID, however, find that SOMEONE, NOT ONE OF US, had been to the home unannounced and placed the RUNNING HOSE back into the pool on 2 separate mornings, without letting us know. We took care of the hose when found.
3) The a/c unable to keep rooms cool on the extension and upper bedroom above the extension. With no awnings covering those windows, the sun heats the rooms to above 86 degrees. The huge TV/entertainment/karaoke room was not able to be enjoyed by any adult due to the heat. The a/c to the kitchen area and other bedrooms did work but the filter MUST BE REPLACED, extremely dirty.
4) Many things need repaired, owner does minimal repairs, doesn't carry tools when stopping in to "fix" things...owner used a SHARP KNIFE to fix the doorknob, asked to borrow our tools. Only 1 washer works, owner KNEW. Bedroom ceiling fans either don't work or are so loud that they can't be used(owner was not able to fix properly, toilet paper that was used to lower noise was left in the fan when owner tried to fix). Showers are extremely small except on the upper floor.
Owners should hire outside handyman, owner clearly not able to repair things properly as evidenced by the "repairs" tried.
I'd like to address all our past guests that have reached out to us with loving concern about Hurricane Florence which left all of Carteret County without power. Thank you so much for keeping us in your thoughts and prayers! We are truly grateful to you all and to God for keeping us safe. My husband & I have survived this ordeal although it was under uncomfortable conditions and there are still so many without power including the Island. We just got power back last night and I was saddened to see such a review. We have many repeat guests who love this property and we have NEVER had any kind of rodent issue & found no such evidence of it. The water hose was left on by accident and all hot water heaters work great. A/C's work great but not if windows are left open. Apparently some were too cold and decided to open windows which my husband closed and politely asked other guests to please keep them closed. We hope everyone stays safe during the aftermath of this storm. God bless you.
Amazing house for our 4 generation beach week!!
We have been coming to Emerald Isle for over 25 years! What a wonderful week we had and this house made it so great for all ages, ours were 9 months to 80 years old! The Indian Beach area is in the middle of the island, but we were very close to Willis's fresh seafood and a couple restaurants and the aquarium. The house is very spacious with a dining room large enough to seat more than 25 people! The kitchen allowed space for a family that loves to cook, plenty of room for multiple people. Also very well stocked with pots, pans, dishes. And utensils. The living room with beautiful views and so much seating served as entertainment area, lounging, reading and game playing area. The karaoke machine, what fun we had with that! The bedrooms were all great! The 3 king suites were so big! The others were very nice, just not as enormous! There was never a problem with sharing bathroom space for those without bath connected. The layout of the house was as we expected. The pool was so wonderful and big!!! The water was crystal clear and the area had many seats. Having the safety gates was a must with little ones. We never used the amazing hot tub, we had such beautiful warm weather! It was so nice having a large covered porch with many chairs on the living level, it was used from breakfast until bed! Then one level down so many more seats and also with a covered area. What a private beach, so few people! We had a bocce area, kite flying and frisbee happening and not worried that you would be bothering anyone! The property was clean and the owner responded very quickly when we had a question and needed assistance. We would definitely recommend this property! Thank you Ken and Julie
It was truly a delight to meet your beautiful family!!! Kenny & I are so happy that you enjoyed your time at "Kiwi Splash" property and that many cherished memories were made. We will be updating & adding online pictures to show our upgraded granite kitchen countertops, all stainless steel appliances and added seating in Dining Room for a total of 24 seats plus 3 bar stools. The multi-level decks all with plenty of seating for everyone to enjoy either shade or sun. We do have the largest swimming pool on the rental market and our beach does feel private since there are only 10-12 homes all oceanfront with no neighbors across the street making it an exclusive private oasis plus offering amazing views! Looks like you embraced the spirit of a vacation and had a wonderful week! We hope to see you again in the future!!!!
Ken & Julie
Hot Tub not working--Deck railing needs replacement------.other maintenance problems.
We are so sorry the hot tub stopped working during your stay, however we immediately replaced it on Aug 29, 2017 with a brand new one to include LED lights, very powerful and relaxing jets & all the bells and whistles to enjoy! The deck railings around the pool deck have also been replaced. I know you expressed interest in returning to "Kiwi Splash" since your group enjoyed their stay. My husband enjoyed meeting some in your group and we do hope you return to "Kiwi Splash" in the future!
